With a flat spell in Santa Cruz, it can be dreadful to look at any surf report--- whether it is Surfline (more like SurfLIE--- as a high school friend used to call it), MagicSeaweed or even government issued NOAA swell reports, the disappointment from the 1-2 foot report and heavy winds is real. At this point, on a Sunday in Northern California, it seems as if surfers are losing their minds. While the East Coast is firing off with hurricane swell (my prayers to those negatively affected), lake pacific sits flatter and flatter and doesn't prospect to change any time soon. Yet, as I sit in the library working on Economics homework, my phone buzzes in my pocket. I check, and it's Eric, a surfer who frequented Santa Cruz with me last year. He claims that Lindamar is fun and peaky; I'm doubtful at best. But, alas, I decide to take a risk and just go for it. Turns out the surf wasn't great, but I brought a camera and this is what came back with me.
